Emmerdale star Leah Bracknell’s widower opens up about ‘grief’ in tribute after her death | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
In the autumn of 2016, Leah announced the sad news that she had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and she married Jez – her long-time partner – just months later.
A fundraiser online campaigning for help to seek experimental treatment in Germany raised £50,000 within just three days, and she also took part in an immunotherapy clinical trial.
However doctors were unable to save her, and she died on September 15 2019 – the date her widower Jez marked in his social media tribute yesterday.
She shared her partner’s passion for healing, having become a yoga practitioner in her latter years, while Jez says he has studied shamanism for 20 years.
His website, Second Sight Healing, which he writes is “dedicated to the renewal of old ways of being, in harmony with ourselves, nature and spirit”.
